Every denomination needs one of these...

Feeling the love

Thursday, June 21, 2007

I'm feeling the love. From The American Spectator by Jeffery Lord:
Fortunately for conservatives within the UCC, as with the conservative movement generally, technology has come to the rescue of this standoff. The once complete domination by liberals is at long last crumbling in quite visible fashion. After all, if the Soviet Union could come to an end, why not liberal control of the UCC? The UCC's liberal assumptions are now openly questioned at popular websites run by dissenters such as UCC Truths. Importantly, in addition to its own original content, in the spirit of diversity that is distinctly not welcomed by the national church, the site lists links both to the official UCC sites as well as to the sites of the blossoming roster of visible UCC dissenters such as the Biblical Witness Fellowship. This last group's flashing message "Renewing the United Church of Christ" is driving the national church leadership just this side of crazy.
The only distinction I would make is that I don't think this site is conservative... or political for that matter. However, I learned a long time ago that I can't define the site since everyone will draw their own conclusion anyways. Certainly conservatives within the church that have felt disenfranchised by the denomination have found a home here but there is nothing overtly political on the site. I don't promote political candidates and I don't advocate for issues outside those relevant to the denomination. However, that doesn't stop denominational cheerleaders (and half-witted Conference Ministers incapable of thinking independently) from labeling all dissent as conservative muckraking. Thankfully, liberal and moderate members of our church have also joined the UCCtruths message board and have found a comfortable place to share their opinions and fellowship as well.
